Bespoke Partners, a provider of retained executive search and leadership advisory services, announced today that Katelyn Quaresma has been promoted to Partner at the firm.
Most recently serving as Vice President, Quaresma has been pivotal to driving Bespoke Partners’ rapid growth and advancing its industry-leading executive recruiting process for private equity-backed software companies. She leads Bespoke’s CFO practice and has successfully placed executives for Thoma Bravo, Clearlake Capital, TA Associates and other top private equity firms.
“Quaresma has established herself as an exceptional leader throughout her time at Bespoke,” says CEO Kristie Nova. “Not only has she been an outstanding team player and a true champion of our values and culture, but she has also been instrumental in Bespoke’s growth as we have transitioned into a full-service human capital advisory firm.”
Quaresma joined Bespoke as Principal in 2015 and rapidly advanced within the firm. In 2019, she led the buildout of the company’s presence in Austin, TX. She earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology from California State University-Long Beach and received her juris doctor from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law, graduating magna cum laude.
“Our dedicated practice for identifying and recruiting high-impact finance leaders has excelled under Katelyn’s leadership,” says Bespoke President Eric Walczykowski. “Her ability to solve complex challenges sets her apart in the industry, and Katelyn is a trusted confidant to some of the best investors in the marketplace.”
